The best crafting gear is the one that’s with you!

Posted by Rajni Chawla

How many times have you got yourself a new punch, a new pack of card stock or a new stamp just because you were not satisfied with the ones already in store?
Don’t worry. It’s human nature that always makes us want more, even if we already have more than enough. But for us crafters, it’s a trap that will make us fall into a rut. A rut that will not only hold back our creativity, but also make us shell out more money to buy new stuff.
A few days ago, I promised myself that I will not buy any more craft material till I have explored all the possible things I can do with the material I already have. And to my surprise it did work for me. I stumbled upon a few dies that had been lost in the vast pile of my material, and created something new out of them.

So here is one thing you should always believe, my fellow crafter:
The best crafting gear is the one that’s with you!

 Open your cupboard and explore the unexplored.


  1. Absolutely right .I agree with you completely.

  2. What a wonderful thought Rajni ji.It is so gratifying to explore a single punch or die for its maximum potential!! And creativity really flows that way!
